Get ready for some GREAT summer fun, as the “My Plates Decades Auction” has something for all Texans! The State of Texas’ official specialty license plate vendor has released a totally cool assortment of 25 special auction plate messages, at Along with these and other great plate messages, My Plates is also releasing rare 4-digit plate messages covering the decades of the 80’s and 90’s. The numeric plate messages on offer begin with 1980, and skip through the decades up to, cue lyrics, party like it’s 1999.

The 1980’s were full of amazing people, things and events. The 80’s saw the end of the Cold War and the rise of synthesized music. Pop culture was more important to people than ever before and when it came to fashion, the 1980’s weren’t subtle: big hair and bright colors of neon and pastels were the rage. Fashion color combinations were commended for their creativity. Music was over-digitized, and commercialism consumed everyone.

The 1990’s were a really intense decade. First, it began with a war, the first Iraq War (AKA Desert Storm). Then the birth of “grunge”, as Seattle takes over the way everyone dresses and listens to music. Hip hop also had a huge impact on the way people dressed, talked and acted. Sports became even more popular than they were before particularly in Texas. The 90’s were good to the Cowboys, winning three Super Bowls, 93, 94 & 96. Then there’s the basketball championships with the Rockets wins in 94 & 95 and the Spurs in 99. Let’s not forget the Stars bringing home the Stanley Cup in 1999.
